CAS-ual Friday with Vellum

I love CAS-ual Fridays and I'm so happy whenever I get a chance to play!

CFC57: Create a Clean And Simple project using acetate or vellum

I know y'all must be sick of my over-use of butterflies. I'm sorry. I just HAD to use them with the vellum.
I went for a Letterpress look with this card. I inked up the embossing folder with my Amuse ink and cranked it through the Big Shot. It's not perfect, but it's a cool effect.

I die cut the vellum butterflies and glued them over the butterfly images. I used white vellum on the bottom three and the top tiny one is pink vellum.

I love the 3-D effect the butterflies give it!
 I made another card with the same products but different colors and layout. I'll try to post it tomorrow. Hope you are having a good weekend!

Dynamic Duos #6

I have been watching this new Challenge blog from the sidelines called Dynamic Duos. I love how it's just 2 colors. I can definitely handle that!

I love the colors for this week's Challenge. I don't own all of the SU colors yet. But I was able to make do.

I just acquired PTI's Iconic Images set. At first it didn't appeal to me but it's slowly been growing on me.

I stamped then cut out the water pitcher. The flowers are from PTI's Year Of Flowers set. A few of the flowers with stems fit really nicely into the pitcher. I tried a few different looks out but I like this one best.

The gladiolus were hand cut and adhered. Not because I like to fussy cut, but because the copic marker I initially used didn't match too well with the cardstock.

I am in the midst of learning how to stamp images in black, scanning them, and then making my own die cut files in the Silhouette Cameo. I am really, really excited because it seems to be working out very well. I'll be able to save a lot of money on dies to spend more on stamps!!

(My craft room is not completely done yet. I hope to have it presentable for a picture soon.)
Thanks for stopping by!
